I am doing my first wedding cake in March and I want to make sure I do it right. I am doing a 6/8/12 round on pillars (going to TRY to attach a picture) and I am just curious how to make it really stable. I was planning on using wilton plates and pillars. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Couldn't copy the pic she sent me but this one is similar but the pillars aren't as high and there will be no fountain or anything under the bottom tier.[img]Image[/img]

Ok, I was just reading a few different techniques on the Wilton web site and found two different options for this cake. I could either do separator plate and pillar construction or push-in pillar construction. Do you prefer one over the other? It seems like the push in method would be more sturdy.

I prefer the push in pillars just because it's easier and faster. Go with that one.
